Lefty's Cool Strut
By Catherine Rollin
This solo for left hand alone is sure to appeal to students with its jazzy style and beat. Written in C major, it begins with a descending bass line that sounds very much like the opening of a jazz solo played by a stringed bass. Various accidentals and swing eighth notes are used to further enhance the style of the piece. This solo is also an excellent review of bass clef reading and gets the left hand moving freely around the keyboard. A Federation Festivals 2014-2016 selection.
